Vogue's creative director and fashion industry icon Grace Coddington is writing a book about her life, reports WWD. Former Men's Vogue editor-in-chief Jay Fielding, who has collaborated with Coddington in the past, is her writing partner.
Coddington's mainstream notoriety has skyrocketed since The September Issue, which means the project is sure to be a hit with fashion insiders and fashion admirers alike. The stylist says that the book will not only cover her life--including her years as a model and time spent at Calvin Klein and British Vogue--but also plenty of fashion history.
As Anna Wintour's Vogue begins to look less and less like "Anna Wintour's Vogue"--as we know it, at least--expect more senior staffers to reflect on their legendary careers, whether through books, articles, or museum retrospectives. As the brightest star, it's no surprise Coddington is leading the pack.
